Sailors Sam Dunlap and Arthur check in to a New York hotel to await their mate Vern Engdahl when a girl shows up proposing to purchase Arthur.

Listened to this a few times
Fun short story about a mate by the name of Arthur who is basically a brain in a jar. The hero of the story, Sam, wants to look after Arthur, but the other friend, Vern, decides to sell him to a despot in post-apocalyptic New York so he can run the power station and other stuff there.
Arthur is not happy about this, so his friends, including the chump who sold him, decide they should perhaps do something about it.
Fun ride, excellent reader, enjoy!
